I passed my both my record PT Tests for the year but 9 days after the second one my unit gave me a PT Test for WLC to see if i was eligible to go(the whole 30 days prior to school thing), and i failed it. Can i be flagged if it was a diagnostic? Can i be flagged even though i passed both my records for the year? Can i be flagged if it WAS another record? And lastly is there a regulation stating that you cannot not take another record PT test within so many days of your last record pt test? Thanks...




  1. taken from AR 350-1

    (2) Commanders may administer the APFT as often as they wish; however, they must specify beforehand when the

    results are for record. The AA and Active Guard/Reserve (AGR) Soldiers will take the APFT at least twice each

    calendar year. A minimum of 4 months will separate record tests if only two record tests are given. The intent is for

    the Active Army and the AGR Soldiers to take a record APFT every 6 months. Mission requirements often prevent the

    even spacing of record tests. Therefore, commanders are encouraged to test Soldiers for record as close to the record

    test window as possible.

    (5) Soldiers who fail a record APFT for the first time or fail to take a record APFT within the required period will

    be flagged in accordance with AR 600–8–2. In the event of a record test failure, commanders may allow Soldiers to

    retake the test as soon as the Soldier and the commander feel the Soldier is ready. Soldiers without a medical profile

    will be retested no later than 90 days following the initial APFT failure. Reserve component Soldiers not on active duty

    and without a medical profile will be tested no later than 180 days following the initial APFT failure.

    (6) Personnel who initially fail the CVSP and are subsequently cleared will have no more than 179 days of

    conditioning before retaking a record APFT.
